TWIN FALLS, Idaho (AP) — Officials have identified a 73-year-old California man who died after attempting a parachute jump off a bridge over the Snake River Canyon in Idaho.

BURLEY, Idaho (AP) — The ACLU of Idaho says the Cassia County School District hasn't taken necessary steps to prevent discrimination following a high school student's complaint. Declo High School senior Sierra Norman and her mother Janeil Norman filed a complaint with the Idaho ACLU in October after Sierra was banned from running for student body president. School officials say she wasn't eligible because she took too many dual-credit classes, but the Normans say the district's decision was related to the fact that Sierra is not Mormon.

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — The University of Idaho says it won't graze sheep this summer on three high-elevation areas in eastern Idaho and western Montana until a lawsuit filed by environmental groups concerning a federal sheep research facility is resolved. Federal officials in documents say the university in March notified the U.S. Department of Agriculture it wouldn't send sheep or sheepherders to the allotments this summer.

WATERTOWN, S.D. (AP) — From sea to shining sea, that's a wrap. Barack Obama met his goal of visiting all 50 states as president with a stop Friday in South Dakota. He's only the fourth president to reach every state. Obama had already racked up 46 states by the start of this year and soon ticked Idaho, South Carolina and Utah off his list.
